The Magic Wand of Training (Copied from the BSA’s Training Site: Scouting.org > Volunteer > Entrenamiento > Entrenamiento)
If you had a magic wand, would you use it to make the Scouting program better and more fun for youth so they stayed in Scouting longer, so it had a larger impact on their lives? What if the same magic wand made leadership roles easier, more rewarding, and led to better retention among adult leaders? Would using that magic wand be a top priority?
Bien, such a magic wand does exist—in the form of the learning programs for leaders in the Boy Scouts of America.
Common sense tells us that training is important, and research shows the importance of trained leaders. Un líder capacitado es conocedor y más confianza en el papel se realiza. Líderes entrenados exhiben un conocimiento y confianza que es recogido por las personas a su alrededor. Líderes capacitados impactan la calidad de los programas de, tenencia de líder, tenencia de la juventud, seguridad, y un montón más. Un líder entrenado está mejor preparado para hacer el programa Scouting todo puede ser!
This document is published by the BSA and is updated periodically. It lists the BSA training courses that are required in order for a leader to be considered “Entrenado” and eligible to wear the “Entrenado” strip for his or her current posición. Some Scouting positions require only the position-specific training (classroom or online). Other positions require live training courses in a classroom setting, and many require additional training in an overnight camping setting. When determining what training is required for a specific Scouting position, be sure to look for the most recent iteration of this document.
Pregunta: When is a Scout leader “fully entrenado”? Respuesta: Bien, to be honest . . . Nunca!
According to an article titled “Fully Trained,” published in the the Fall 2014/Winter 2015 edición de Training Times, Página 1, a leader can always learn new things by attending or teaching a training course. This very short and to-the-point article is copied below:
We often fall into the trap of calling a Scouter “fully trained” when he or she completes “basic” entrenamiento [i.e. leader position-specific training]. It leads some to think that they have done all of the training they can do. Claro, no person is ever “fully trained.” Even the most tenured Scouter can learn something by attending or instructing a course.
The Five Levels of the BSA Training Continuum discussed in the Guía de entrenamiento del líder provide a wealth of opportunities for a progression of learning for all of us to learn more about program, liderazgo, and other important skills. Do not fall into the trap of using the term “fully trained.”
También, keep in mind that each of us must repeat Youth Protection training (the standard YP course and/or Venturing Youth Protection training) every two years. Además, several other BSA training courses expire after two years (Weather Hazards, Nado seguro defensa, Seguridad a flote, and Climb on Safely).
